My thoughts: You should know that I love horror movies. And French horror films are in a category of their own (Martyrs, anyone?) The plot seems simple so far but in a way that I think most horror movies work. A trailer for this hasn’t been released, but the promotional pictures alone have me totally geeking out/being scared already. It looks gorgeous and gross all at the same time. To be honest, this shit seems terrifying.
